ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the need for the incoming U.S. president to establish a federal-supported homeland security academic university in 2009. It relates the establishment of such an entity is principally needed because there is no existing institution that provides the academic program and training. Moreover, it contends that the lack of single location for academic and training in homeland security subjects makes candidates highly impractical and costly with less than ideal results.
